Renilda
Renilda is 28 years old. She is married to Alejandro and has a daughter who lives with her in a home they rent. Ever since she was very young, Renilda helped her parents with different farming chores. As years went by she decided to make this business her main source of income for her family's financial growth. She took on her mother's role along with her husband, and together they work from sunrise to sunset maintaining and producing organic cacao. She says she likes her work because it is a job her family can carry out together.

Since it is the reainy season, she decided it would be beneficial to start weeding her land sooner in order to prevent weeds from competing for nutrients with her cacao trees. She wants to do this with help from additional workers in order to get the job done more quickly.

This is her second loan with Kiva and she is grateful for the opportunity she needs in order to keep going. She also promises to pay her installments on time. This second time around she wants to have 2,000 nuevos soles in order to hire local workers.

Renilda tiene 28 años, está casada con Alejandro y tiene una hija con quien vive en una casa alquilada. Renilda desde muy pequeña se dedico a apoyar a sus padres en las diversas actividades agrícolas. Con el pasar de los años optó por convertir esta actividad en su principal fuente de ingreso para el crecimiento económico de su familiar al asumir su rol de madre junto a su esposo con quien labora de sol a sol en el mantenimiento y producción de cacao orgánico. Comenta que le agrada su trabajo puesto que no está ligado a presiones y es una labor que puede desempeñar en conjunto con su familia. Al hallarse en la temporada de lluvias ha visto por conveniente adelantar el deshierbo de sus tierras por campaña para evitar que la mala hierba compita por los nutrientes de sus plantaciones de cacao, para el cual desea contar con el apoyo de personal externo para hacer más rápido el trabajo. Este es su segundo préstamo con Kiva y se siente agradecida por la oportunidad que necesita para seguir adelante, además se compromete a pagar sus cuotas de manera puntual. En esta segunda oportunidad desea contar con 2,000 nuevos soles para contratar trabajadores de la zona.
